The only survivor in his unit after a battle with Rommel's soldiers in North Africa, British Corporal Bramble staggers through the desert until arriving at the largely deserted Empress of Britain hotel, staffed only by owner Farid and his French employee Mouche. While Bramble hopes to hide there, the hotel doesn't remain deserted for long – Rommel and his men arrive and take over the building as new headquarters. Bramble assumes the identity of a recently killed waiter...only to soon discover that this waiter was also serving as a German spy, a role Bramble now has to adopt for his own survival. And while Mouche knows Bramble's true identity, she has her own reasons for not wanting to aid in his plot.
